Petition Throw out plans to make lower New St. John's road one-way northbound

The current plans to widen the pavement and send traffic northbound one way will force those heading southbound down New St. John's road onto Parade Road where the signal controlled junction lets out five cars at the best of times onto the already heavily congested road Elizabeth Place.

More details

Should the plan go ahead it will increase traffic flow around Helvetia House primary school with more exhaust fumes and raised potential for an accident. Furthermore in the plans for the top end of the road there is a give way chicane presenting more problems on an already dangerous corner where vehicles often cross the white centre line.

Given the plans to go green with electric vehicles and achieve carbon neutral by 2050, it heightens the risk of these almost silent vehicles hitting someone should the area be made more pedestrianised.
